Registration is now open for the 2021 Virtual Grand Prix!

 

You read that right. The Grand Prix, which some call the most exciting 60-minute competition in software, is going virtual. The core of the competition will remain the same – “drivers” will compete against one another to solve workflows the fastest using Alteryx. But this year, it will all happen from the comfort of your own desk and be broadcast across the globe at Inspire.

 

Think you’ve got what it takes to be our next Grand Prix Champion? REGISTER NOW for the 2021 Virtual Grand Prix!

 

2021 Virtual Grand Prix Qualification and Timeline: 

  • Register for the Grand Prix by Friday, April 9th
  • Each racer will compete in ONE 60-minute WebEx session to complete workflows judged by Alteryx Grand Prix referees. These will take place the week of April 12th.
    • Successful workflow completion earns you points, with the top 10 racers advancing to the finals
    • You must be able to access Drop and WebEx during the preliminary round.

 

Virtual Grand Prix 2021 Rules:

  • You must be registered for the Alteryx Community
  • You must be an Alteryx customer (partners are not allowed to compete as drivers)

This will be exciting to watch! A pity for whoever is hosting that it's WebEx not Zoom... the puns would write themselves 🏎🏁

Partners can’t be drivers, but will you have pit crew roles?

@cgoodman3 - we are still working out the details on how to best incorporate pit crew in the virtual environment. Stay tuned for updates!

Registered excitedly during the Easter weekend, but slightly disappointed by the fact: partners are not allowed to compete as drivers.

Why partners are not allowed, if I may ask? @JimmyG 

 

Btw, Is there anything similar for partners during the virtual INSPIRE conference?

Hi @steven4320555 - thanks for your interest in the Grand Prix! This is a competition among Alteryx customers and usually partners participate as pit crew. Since we are virtual this year, we are unfortunately unable to have a pit crew member for each driver, so we encourage our partners to coach/cheer on our mutual customers!
